Tinfoil for Facebook

Tinfoil for Facebook


**THIS IS A WRAPPER FOR FACEBOOK'S MOBILE SITE, IF SOMETHING BREAKS ON THE SITE, THERE ISN'T MUCH I CAN DO.**

Tinfoil for Facebook is for those users that require a Tinfoil Hat when logging in to Facebook. It creates a sandbox for Facebook's mobile site in order to protect your privacy and to avoid the ability others to track your browsing history.

Requires INTERNET permissions.
Feel free to check the source code here: https://github.com/velazcod/Tinfoil-Facebook

It also requires the "COARSE_LOCATION" permission. This is not used unless you enable "Allow Check-ins" on the preferences, otherwise Check-ins won't work. This option is disabled by default.

If you have issues, please remember that Tinfoil is just a wrapper for the Facebook mobile site. Some things break on the site and there isn't much we can do to fix some issues. Sometimes forcing the user-agent helps (Preferences -> Mobile/desktop site -> Force mobile). If you find an issue and are completely it's a problem with Tinfoil please open a issue in the Github tracker: https://github.com/velazcod/Tinfoil-Facebook/issues

Recent changes:
v1.7.5:
- FINE_LOCATION permission is now needed in order for the geolocation feature to work (check-ins). Location will still not be sent to Facebook unless you have the 'Allow check-ins' option enabled.
- Use a wide viewport in order to try to avoid images going off screen
- New icon using material design specs by Constantin Eckstein
- Bug fixes
- Please remember this is just a wrapper to Facebook's mobile site and we have no much control of content and layout changes.

First world anarchy This is better battery wise than the Facebook app. Annoying when I back out of a post and it brings me back to the top of the feed. Still worth it for its light weight.

Love It! So far everything I want works even messages. Remember this is just wrap arount for mobile site. When you go into all messages fb tries to get you to get app just hit "not now" and it will go away. Though this doesn't happen on desktop mode. Videos and games play just fine with tinfoil fb and if it doesn't then install adobe flash apk from Adobe developer downloads. This is my goto fb app. Fast for fb app has little more and can even see you news feed stuff fb hides from you.

No longer uploads photos Not the fault of the developer, Facebook just tends to update its site in many bullshit ways making apps such as this harder to create. This has been a must for my various phones and tablets through the past few years and it saddens me that I must say goodbye to a very trusted app. So long; and thanks for all the fish, Tinfoil.
